California says no to Kosher for Passover Coke
News that matters: California has banned Kosher for Passover Coke. That’s right, the good stuff that has real sugar in it will no longer be sold in the state. JTA reports:
Just another reminder that the Pepsi lobby is strong.
The story goes on to say that some store still have the blackmarket Passover Coke, imported from other states, though I have to imagine that selling it is still illegal.
So does this mean that I’ll no longer see the “hecho in Mexico” Coca-Cola at Target? Isn’t that the same thing? California might be able to keep real-sugar Coke out of the state, but legislators can’t deny that the corn syrup Coke is better.
